    Nice! Although nothing showed up for me and it was just a red X. I had to right click, properties, copy the link and paste in new window to see the picture.

    It was worth it. Is that an Axiom?

    Hey ViperZ,
    Who's in the running? What about a custom Moots, or Strong, or Dean, or hmmm IF, or who else does custom TI? I heard that crazy dude Zinn is now doing TI. His book is pretty good. Let's see, what about Tom Kellogg at Spectrum Cycles?

    I have been talking to Everti and Spicer. Gene at Spicer was wanting to build me a custom Steel Cruiser frame with Disc brakes. Everti has a Ti Fighter Cross Bike.

    I would like a Seven Mud Honey Cross Bike, but it's a bit costly right now.

    I think a Steel/Ti 29" MTB woul dfill the need for my new MTB, yet beable to suffce as a good cross bike as well with different tires/wheels

    Still does not show until you right click, copy properties and paste in a new browser. Once it's in your PC's Cache, it shows up in the thread. Your host may not allow remote linking.

    Thats a fine machine!

    I feel like a soiled kleenex dropped in the gutter in the red-light district of Paris.

    No progress to report. I've been going crazy waiting on the components to arrive. I did remove the decals. I started with the top tube cause they were a little wrinkled and ended up taking them all off. It looks a little naked right now. I hope when everything is put together it'll look better.

    I'm thinking about making some type of head tube badge for it. Does anyone have any ideas??

    My Litespeed Vortex compact. I bought this about two months ago, rode it over 500 miles since and am having a blast with it. I just added a Selle Italia Gelflow SLR saddle, Easton 44cm handlebars and GP4000 tires.

    OK. Here are a couple of pics of my partial build. Sorry. I couldn't find a garage door at the office. This will have to do.

    Excuse me sir, I have no garage door to show you, so let me take the photos next to my helicopter.

    Kidding aside, what frame is that, and what size is it? Judging by the headtube, I'd say it's a fairly large size. And oh yes - it looks very nice so far.

    Trust me. The copter is not mine. I just get to wiggle the sticks every once and a while. And I get paid for it too.


    The bike is a Habanero Team Issue 64 C-T. Mostly Ultegra with Shimano compact crank. Thomson stem and post. King HS. Deda Newton shallow drop bars. Mike Garcia Niobium 30 wheels.

    I guess that's all. I'm still waiting on the front derailleur so I can finish it up. So far it rides really well. I rode it like a scooter around the hangar today.

    IF Ti ClubRacer, my distance machine, brevet bike, etc. Ti frame, Steel Fork

    Day of build... I had a pro fit done about a week later and worked out the steerer tube length and stem position. (didn't want to cut anything too short!) The Ritchey crank was eventually swapped to a Specialities TA Carmina.







    Rigged for randonneuring...





    Love the jeckyll / hyde of this frame. Road machine that converts easily (and gracefully) to a distance machine.

    Nice. I went out tonight and tried some night photography as well. I posted a link in your other thread. I have that same tripod (works great backpacking!) and a Canon as well. Was inspired but didn't get nearly the same kind of shots you did.
